Lab Representatives

Lab Reps are a point of contact to facilitate communication among students, interns, postdocs, faculty, and staff, as well as to enhance student involvement in decision-making processes.

Lab Reps are elected every year by the students at Mila. While the specific initiatives they undertake vary each year, depending on the current context and the interests of the members, they are always working to improve various aspects of the Mila community. 

Students in need of advice or resources are welcome and encouraged to reach out to the Lab Reps at any time.
